The most valuable soft wood in North America goes into every True North log home. Grown in the forests of Northern Ontario and Quebec, we carefully choose winter-cut, slow growth eastern white pine for your home. The durable heartwood of the log is used for added dimensional stability. The sapwood (soft layers between the heartwood and the bark) is eliminated in the squaring process. This assures that log settlement is minimal—not exceeding one inch in an eight-foot wall height. Western red cedar is also available upon request.
